My husband and I had been trying for over a year and a half to have a baby.  I felt very frustrated because for anyone who has had fertility issues you know that in most cases you’re  expected to wait for a year of trying to get pregnant before an OBGYN will see you to even discuss the possibility of problems.  I waited for that year to pass by and when I was seen by my doctor, I had lab tests done which revealed that I wasn’t ovulating.  I thought, what in the world is wrong with me and what have I done wrong to cause this problem.  There seemed to be no concern or interest of my doctor to figure out why I wasn’t ovulating. The plan was for me to take Chlomid so my body would be forced to ovulate.   After the first month of a Chlomid regimen, to my excitement I found out in December 2012 that I was pregnant.  We were over the moon.  Six weeks into the pregnancy I started having complications and at 8 weeks pregnant I was told that this pregnancy was a blighted ovum.  We were devastated.  My doctor told me that we would have to wait three months before I could try another Clomid regimen.   I was feeling completely helpless and dependent upon this medication regimen to provide me with an outcome I so desired, to get pregnant and have a healthy baby.  I completely felt like all my eggs were in one basket (literally!).  I’m not exactly sure what caused me to start researching other sources for fertility help on the internet but I did one day.  I started to read about the benefits of acupuncture and regular chiropractic treatments and the positive impact they could have on fertility.  When I searched online for a doctor that did acupuncture and chiropractic locally, I found Dr Baker.  I wasn’t sure what to expect going into my first appointment.  I know at that point I had never felt like any doctor had really listened to me, allowed me to ask questions, explain to me what was going on with my body, and was willing to explore the causes of my fertility issues.  That was until I started my journey with Dr Baker.  I remember leaving my initial appointment feeling very empowered.  She thoroughly went over all of my medical history and answered all of the questions I had.  When I told Dr Baker that my OBGYN said that I wasn’t ovulating she explained to me that this was only one test which showed that I didn’t ovulate that month.  This did not mean that I wasn’t ovulating altogether.  It’s strange because that is something I never thought about before considering what I had been told by my OBGYN.  That one simple comment made me feel so differently.  I didn’t feel guilty, defeated, or responsible anymore.  I felt very hopeful.  I started having weekly acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments to work on my fertility issues along with my other medical problems I have experienced off and on throughout my life.  During that time I started sleeping better, having less allergy attacks, less headaches, and not feeling as stressed.  For several weeks Dr Baker worked on the points for fertility.  She always thoroughly explained things to me, offered support, and made me feel like she was truly invested in our doctor/patient relationship.  In late April 2013 I did another Clomid regimen.  In a little under four weeks I found out I was pregnant.  I truly believe that the regular acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments played a huge role in my success with getting pregnant this second time.   Now I am a little over 4 months pregnant!  Since I became pregnant I have continued to receive chiropractic care and acupuncture.  These treatments reduced my morning sickness and helped me get quality rest.  I am very grateful for having Dr Baker in my life!
